    Default Dark Souls (Spiritual Successor to Demon's Souls)



    From Software, the developers behind RPG cult hits the Kings Field series and Demon's Souls, have announced their new RPG, Dark Souls. Not a direct sequel to Demon's Souls but clearly in a very similar (if not identical) vein, this instalment will not be a PS3 exclusive like its predecessor but will be arriving on all of the major platforms (PS3, 360, and PC) in 2011.

    Awesome news, and screenshots look good. Although I read it's going to be as difficult as the first game.

    I know that's a part of the appeal of the game, but it also the reason why I still haven't finished the first game yet
    One of the universal rules of happiness is: always be wary of any helpful item that weighs less than its operating manual.

    YES I WANT THIS GAME.

    I really enjoyed the first one. The fighting was really smooth and required thought and tactics. You didnt just keep pressing the same attack button, you had to really think about how you were going to kill your enemy. Moreover, you had to respect your enemy, most enemies would kick the crap out of you if you did not approach the fight propley. Thats what i felt make the 1st game great.

    My biggest criticizm of the first game was that it was a bit linier, but this new one is meant to be a bit more open world style. If that is true, then this game will be awesome!!!!

    Might trade a couple games in for this one to take away some of the sting. Not sure about it, yet it's nagging at me so I'll probably get it. Hello, female protagonist!

    So is this a good game? Is it the kind of game only certain people will like or just generally good? I'm hanging for Battlefield 3 and the only other game I'll probably get this year is TESV: Skyrim but theyre still weeks away, BF3 beta has filled a gap nicely but its gonna finish tomorrow or some shit D: Was thinking Dark Souls or FIFA12 but I didn't play Demon Souls (does that matter?) and I bought FIFA10 and only played it for 8-9 hours all up...

    Difficulty is fine, having to traverse for 10 minutes just to get to the difficulty sucks.

    Do you mean you have to travel the same 10 minutes to get back to where you died to die again? Is the difficulty fair? I dont mind hard but I hate when it's just retarded programming - like w@w on elite, I've never died so many times from random b/s enemy nades that just appear at your feet. From the reviews I've read, they're all pretty high (8.5+) and all of them mention difficulty. I find it hard to trust any of the reviews - like it's cool to rate the game because it's really hard :/

    Played it this afternoon and i love it, my biggest complaint is that you cant just quit. its a pain that you have to travel to a bonfire just to quit without dying.

    yeah. the difficulty is based on skill. u have to know ur enemy and know how they attack and just figure out ways to defeat them the best way possible. also explore everything, the game gives u plenty of items to give u some little bit of help. yes u do have to restart each time u die to the last bonfire but the only reason it feels so long is because each enemy is difficult to defeat the first time u encounter them so just going through 5 enemies can feel like a long time when it was just the battles that were long.

    if u guys got the limited edition, Id advise u read the mini guide which just tells u the basics since its just a taste of the full guide and gives u hints on battle gameplay. The game dosnt hold ur hand or tell u everything so ur left with figuring out how some things work. so just read the mini guide it if ur having trouble, especially for the second boss fight.

    Ah yes, the great nail polish wars of 2011. Historians will record that they ended when the offending IP address and email domain was forever banned from AUF, along with all of the associated user accounts and posts. Sadly this was not the end of the larger Internet Spam Conflict which continued for many years, but it was an important victory for the good guys (and PETA).
